Myett’s and a string of small “mom and pop” hotels and beach bars on Cane Garden Bay on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands was a place my friends and I used to visit in the ’80s, when I lived in Fort Lauderdale and worked at the Sun-Sentinel newspaper.
The island is renowned for its sailing, scuba diving, and fresh seafood, and Myett’s and the others were gathering spots. The video below gives you an idea of the place.
Hurricane Irma obliterated the place. Now Hurricane Maria is bearing down on the islands.
Here’s some before and after photos in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The photos are from Myett’s Facebook page:
